I was actually driven out of Amazon in 1912 because I supported contemporary music.  After a hiatus of 18 months I returned as "applesauce".  I still was not very active.

Of all the classical music forums I have participated in this one is the best.

It is. And ' 1912' points towards quite a respectable age.  :-X

Amazon actually was selling refugees costumes in Germany.
This caused quite an outrage and they had to withdraw.

I must say, in term of bad taste, this is difficult to beat.
A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.
